Some people like to decorate every nook and cranny for each season or holiday. I’m not one of those people. I have my areas I change out seasonally, but I like to keep things pretty simple because…what’s that law of physics…what goes up must come down? 😉 Plus, as my husband likes to remind me, we have finite space for storing these decorations.
That being said, I do still like to change things up throughout the year, so I thought I’d give you a little tour of my fall decor! I’ve really been enjoying the neutral fall colors this year, as you may have been able to tell from my Neutral Fall Botany Printables post, as well as buffalo check and pumpkins!
Welcome! Please step into the entryway. May I take your jacket?
I’m not really sure if this counts as “fall” decor, but we’re going to go ahead and call it that since I put it together in September, mmkay? 😉
I found this little apothecary chest at Homegoods a few months ago and loved it. Thankfully I had a gift card I’d been given for my birthday, so I didn’t have to try to justify buying a piece I totally didn’t need! 🙂
In keeping with my church musician tendencies, I cut up some slips of scrapbooking paper and wrote out some lyrics from a familiar hymn. It will be so fun to change it up occasionally – like maybe use a line from a Christmas hymn in a few months!
Next we move to the living room…
This fall decor is brought to you by the dollar section at Target! Well, not the basket – that’s from Homegoods – but the pumpkins and greenery were all in that alluring “dollar” section right when you walk into Target (where everything is actually more like $3-5). I just love the buffalo check!
Besides being budget friendly, the nice thing about this arrangement is that it’s not breakable, which is fabulous as it has been disassembled by someone *ahem* several times but has come away unscathed.
This little beauty right here is a trash-to-treasure transformation! It rests on the little bench next to our tv.
I found one of those old wooden magazine racks at a thrift store a few weeks ago. It got a few coats of Fusion Mineral Paint in Lamp White, some distressing action, burlap, greenery, and a few adorable little pumpkins from Joann Fabric. The magazine rack was about $5, I already had the paint, burlap, and greenery (leftover from our wedding decorations!), and the pumpkins were 50% off, so it was pretty cost effective!
I plan to share a little before and after of this project in the near future.
Onward! Let’s move to the family room.
If you’ve been following along with me the last few weeks, these probably look familiar. They are the Neutral Fall Botany Printables I put together – available free for subscribers.
They are also the only fall decor in my family room. See, I meant it about the simplicity thing!
Lastly, we come to the kitchen.
When I saw this wreath at Homegoods last month, I just knew those white pumpkins would pop perfectly against these dark window frames!
I love mixing light colors and dark wood tones – it’s one of my favorite decorating combinations. Add in some texture from the pumpkins, a little soft greenery, and it pulls it all together.
I received some questions on Instagram about my crocks here – the big one has been in my family for years (it’s old), and the small one came from the gift department of a local grocery store (Dierbergs, for locals), so unfortunately I can’t really point you in a direction to get these for yourselves. I have seen numerous similar crocks on Facebook marketplace and at antique stores, so you might start there.
The chunky candlesticks are from Walmart, the greenery was on clearance at Kirkland’s, the two white felt pumpkins are from Homegoods, the burlap pumpkin was from Target several years ago, and the gray and white knit chevron pumpkin is from Pier1. Pier1 really had some neat fall stuff this year!
Speaking of neat fall decor from Pier1, that’s where I found these pillows for the bench in our kitchen (which is still awaiting its paint job, by the way):
This sweet little sign at the base of the bench was another Target dollar spot find. It was a little kit where you could choose your phrase and choose your board, then put it together yourself.
The greenery here is yet more garland leftover from our wedding decorations (yay!), and the little white pumpkin is [yet another] Target dollar spot item.
As soon as I saw this adorable little kitchen towel at Joann Fabric, I knew it was coming home with me:
And in case you haven’t heard about Target dollar spot enough, these beautiful little olive branches and sweet little pumpkin were more awesome finds in that section.
I just stuck the branches in an old cider jar and called it good. I love the clean simplicity. 🙂
What is it that Porky Pig always said at the end of cartoons back in the day? “That’s all, folks!” I hope you enjoyed this little tour of my fall decor. The only thing I left out, because I haven’t completed it yet, is the front porch. Until now it’s been too hot to buy mums, but I finally just bought some today! We’re hoping to take the kids to the pumpkin patch in the next few weeks to get our porch pumpkins, and I’m planning to paint that little chair I had the garbage collector pull out of the garbage truck… oh, I didn’t tell you about that? I’ll save it for another time. 😉
